Saturdays are often “off” days for me. I flutter between doing household chores and going over my sermon time and again trying to settle myself. All this too and fro comes from a lack of focus. On the day before Sunday one might think that focusing would come easily; most often this is not the case.
Just before noon today I decided to run my “start my day” routine. This helps me line up the tasks for the day, making sure that nothing gets missed. Today, besides running the sermon over and over in my head I need to photocopy for tomorrow and rehearse for a concert tonight. Both to do list items are not part of my normal routine and thus has me somewhat flustered. So, what’s the plan?
- Keep my to-do list handy
- Follow said list exactly
- Make sure there is time allotted for self-ministry
- Breathe, meditate, and pray
What do you do when your day feels off balanced? So you engage in moments of self-care?
I would love to read what your go-to list would be.
